Further details

Once you've arrived at Bodrum - Milas Airport (BJV)

There are 2 ways of getting to the Horizon Sky Beach resort, depending on when your flight arrives.

By Boat

The thirty minute free boat trip from Gulluk harbour to Horizon Sky is a wonderful way to start your holiday. This involves getting a taxi from the airport to the town of Gulluk which should take around 15mins. Depending on your arrival time, why not relax at one of the bars along the harbour with an ice cold beverage. Once you have boarded the boat from the quayside you will be taken across to the resort jetty where you will be greeted and escorted to the apartment. Your luggage will be delivered to your door, so all you need do is enjoy the welcome.

The timetable is as follows

Depart Gulluk

08:15

11:30

15:00

17:00

18:45

22:30

00:00

By Road

If your flight arrives outside of the boat timetable hours or you would simply like to be taken straight from the airport to the resort without any waiting around then road transfers take approx 50mins. Bodrum Transfers offer a good service and you can book online

Select to travel from 'Bodrum Airport (BJV)' to 'Iasos (Kiyikislacik)'

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region

Horizon Sky Beach Resort is situated in a region of Bodrum on the gulf of Gulluk. Located in Mandalya Bay on the Aegean Sea, the Turquoise Coast, Gulluk is a peaceful, quiet fishing village with an abundance of restaurants and cafes serving locally caught fish, primarily sea bass and bream. Gulluk has several supermarkets and local shops selling fresh local produce. Every Thursday, the village is served by a lively market selling fresh vegetables, cheeses, homeware, and clothes.

The area has much historical and cultural significance leading to stringent laws now curbing commercial inference and property development. Horizon Sky is also located in close proximity of Bodrum International Airport, operating flights throughout the summer season.

The average temperature ranges from 15 degrees in the winter months to around 33 degrees in the summer, with rainfall negligible between June and September. For more information on what you can expect weatherwise, check here -

Gulluk

You can rent a car, book a myriad of day excursions or even take trips to nearby Greek islands and have 'a holiday within a holiday'. There's an opportunity to play golf at nearby Milas Golf Resort, or simply while the day away, sipping Turkish coffee or your favourite tipple!

The free Horizon Sky private water taxi is based in the harbour and provides regular trips across the bay to the resort for all visitors

The castle town of Bodrum can be easily reached from Gulluk - it's a 35min drive by taxi or the very cheap local dolmus bus (7TL each way).

Bodrum is a buzzing thriving, artisan community where tradition goes hand in hand with designer labels, jewellery and leather goods amid local street markets.

The nightlife is garnering an international reputation as being one of the best places in the world for a party. Here's what you can expect -

Also in between Gulluk and Bodrum is a Dolphin Park where you can swim in the sea with these beautiful animals plus a water park with the usual slides and rides. There's also a Golf Resort close by and the ancient Greek ruins of Iasos.

"Beautiful holidays at Horizon Sky Resort"

the residence is quiet, nice, well maintained and is situated on a hill with magnificent views of the sea. route to be reached is difficult but lets discover authentic places and surprises (herd of goats ...). several beaches (water very clear and warm) always everyone equiped are a 5 minute drive or shuttle.
The main pools are very nice, clean and well equipped. (Sunbeds, jacuzzi ..).
the shuttle boat to the small port of guluk is a delight on every trip and turns out more convenient for shopping or eating out ...
the apartment is consistent with the description, bright, comfortable, well équipé.Andrew, the owner is very helpful and friendly.
it is well located (person above) and oriented, we can lunch on the terrace at lunchtime without being too hot.
air conditioning works well.
wifi running. (some failures from time to time).
the gym no longer exists and fallow land (pending development) outside the residence are worth noting.
we had a great time, enjoyed every day by the pool and the beautiful beaches and discovered beautiful and picturesque places (lassos, gumusluck, bodrum ...) We recommend this apartment and certainnement
when we return in the region will book again.

Hi there! I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and many thanks for the review. I am always striving to improve the experience of everyone who visits the apartment I hope one day to welcome you back to Horizon Sky for you to enjoy again.

"Lovely apartment but isolated location with no local services"

The apartment complex itself was faultless and the pool and surrounding areas were well maintained. The drawback however was with the location. Firstly the trip advisor map is WRONG. The apartment is … More

Hi, thank you for the review and I appreciate your comments. I was surprised to note you mentioned the location on the TripAdvisor map is wrong as it has been correctly pinpointed, although I have noted that TripAdvisor has labelled the apartment as being located in Bodrum City, which it clearly is not (I set up with their sister site Holiday Lettings), so thank you for pointing that out. I am glad you found the apartment pleasant as I am constantly trying to add further bits and bobs to make it a more liveable and comfortable home. Best regards, Andrew

"Great Stay @ Horizon Sky"

This review is acurate at the time of writing it.

Villa

The villa is exactly as described on Holiday Lettings where we booked from, Andrew was very easy to contact and very helpful at all

times. The A/c went wrong one morning, I emailed Andrew and by the afternoon someone had come to fix it and all was well again. The

kitchen has all the basic utensils you will need unless you are planing some elaborate meal. The bathrooms are very nice and clean,

never a problem with hot water (we were 2 adults and 2 teenagers). There is Wi-Fi provided by the complex which for the most part

works fine, every now and again it's not working but it was no big deal. TV & DVD player which plays AVI's and has a USB slot and an

SD card slot, I brought some movies (AVI format) on a disc as well as SD card just in case and was glad I did. Toaster, kettle

etc....

The bedrooms are nice, beds are a little bit hard but again no big deal. Plenty of closet space for our clothes. Living room is

comfortable. The balcony overlooks the main pool and has a sea view however there is an area next to the main pool which looks like

it will be developed at some point but at the moment it kind of blights the sea view but certainly not worth complaining about.

There was a blow up lie low in the villa which we used in the pool. All in all we were very happy with the villa.

Pools

The pools are clean and nice to swim in, we mainly used one of the smaller pools behind the villa as the sunbeds get taken quite

quickly in the morning in the main pool. Some people went down and put towels on the sunbeds to reserve them (which is a bit cheeky

really) and the management took the towels away, apparently it's a new policy they have from what I was told. There are quite a few

big umbrellas to shade out the sun however some of them are in disrepair and could use some attention. Some of the decking is coming

up around all the pools that we used and looks like it has been screwed down previously, I was a bit surprised that more attention

wasn't paid to this as a few times I found screw heads sticking up. I pulled them out as a child could have gashed a toe on one.

There is a pool table outside by the main pool but it's broken so not really sure why it's still there. There is also a childrens

play are with slides which seems in good nick. On the whole though the pools are really nice and we spent alot of time there.


Snack Bar

There is a snack bar by the main pool as well as a restaurant where you can get snacks, drinks, ice cream, lunch and an evening

meal. The food is just ok, for example the girls had a dessert one night which was dissapointing, A banana split was litteraly a

banana sliced down the middle with a small scoop of ice cream, it really fell short of the mark. You can also buy milk, juice, bread

etc from the snack bar but I would advise using the little shop on the road outside the main gate (not part of the complex) as the

prices are much lower there. She only stocks basic goods and the problem is that she doesn't always have milk for example. She

always has water though so we always bought 5 litre bottles from here to save having to carry it back on the boat from Güllük. It's

really hit and miss as to what she will have on the day. There is also a fruit and veg market on Sundays up the road outside the

main gate which is cheap and a good place to stock up, sometimes there is also someone selling cheese,bread , olive oil as well. You

will need to learn how to count in Turkish as they don't speak any english.


Beach Bar

The Beach bar had only just opened when we arrived, at the begining they played awful club music WAY too loud which I think ruined

the atmosphere but I guess enough people complained and they stopped doing that. The food isn't too bad there and there was a happy

hour from 7 - 9 I think. It's very comfortable there, there are also some sofas and hammocks.The food there is ok and we ate there a

few times but maybe it will get better with time, the Cappucinno for example was not very good but the Effes beer and other drinks

were great . There is also a small beach there which we used one day but we prefered the pool.


Staff

Most of the staff are really nice people speaking varying degrees of english so it's worth knowing just a bit of Turkish however

saying that we never really had any problem.


Getting around

If you want to get the ferry , you can ask at the snack bar for a car/mini bus to take you down or you can walk but in the summer

it's very hot and it'a a bit of a walk down to the jetty so I would recommend getting a car to take you down. We did walk back one

evening to the villa when it was cooler but it was a bit of a hike up the steps and the hill. When you come back with the ferry, if

there are alot of people you will probably have to wait a few minutes to get a car as they can only fit so many people in the mini

bus and they will have to make several trips back and forth to get everyone home but it was never a problem.


Güllük

There is a free ferry that takes you back and forth to Güllük at regular intervals and to do your main shopping you will need to go

to Güllük. There are a few shops (Migros being the biggest one) where you can get pretty much whatever you want but it's worth

knowing what certain things are called in Turkish as we struggled at times. Milk for example is called Süt. There are quite a few

restaurants to choose from, we only ate at Fuegos and The Pide restaurant by the Migros. Pide is a kind of Turkish Pizza/Pitta bread

with cheese and meat which is really nice. I would definately recommend taking a boat trip with Mehmet Dönmez, his boat is next to

the ferry in Güllük. Mehmet is a great guy I you will have a fantastic time on his boat swiming, playing games, lunch etc and all

for 30 Lira. There is a market on Thursdays which is worth a visit to get fruit and veg as well as spices, clothes etc. Varying

degrees of english are spoken so definately worth learning some Turkish.


Bodrum

Bodrum is definately worth a visit, the bus ( Dolmuş ) goes from Güllük at regular intervals and costs 15 lira round trip. It takes

45 minutes and you will want to coordinate the return with the ferry back to Horizon Sky. The last very back is 12:30 a night, if

you miss it , it's a 150 Lira taxi ride back to Horizon Sky. We got the 11:30 Dolmuş back from Bodrum and that got us back in time

for the 12:30 boat back to Horizon Sky. There's loads of shops in Bodrum and you definately have to haggle the price down, don't

just accept the price offered. There are loads of restaurants to choose from. There are beaches behind cafes which are free to use,

we just bought some drinks from them. The water there is BEAUTIFUL!!!! so refreshing to swim in....there is a nice marina there

worth seeing as well as the Castle.


Money

I would change some money on the way out and then change money in Güllük as you get a slightly better rate, there are also loads of

cash point machines to use. I didn't see anywhere in Güllük advertising prices in Euros but that's not to say they wouldn't take

them. Bodrum on the other hand advertises both.

All in all we had a fantastic time and I'm sure we will go again, we met some fantastic people there (some owners and some renters

like us).

Many thanks for taking the time to review my apartment at Horizon Sky and I am delighted you enjoyed the stay!

"Fabulous resort"

Just returned from two week stay at Horizon Sky. The apartment was pristine - brand new fixtures and fittings, beautifully furnished and incredible sea view.
The resort was clean and very well maintained with lots of sun loungers around the pool and incredibly friendly staff in the bar and restaurant.
There is a free boat service to Gulluk several times a day and transport to beach etc.
Dolmus bus to Bodrum was comfortable, reliable and value for money.

Thank you so much for your review of my apartment and Horizon Sky. It's great to hear you enjoyed your holiday and thank you very much for all your comments. I aim to constantly add value to the apartment each time I head there myself and hope one day you will consider returning. Best regards, Andrew
